PUUUUUERTO RICO,You lovely island . . .
Island of tropical breezes.
Always the pineapples growing,
Always the coffee blossoms blowing . . .
I grew up on classics I'm talking Singing in the Rain, The King & I, Bye Bye Birdie, The ORIGINAL Parent Trap, Swiss Family Robinson, My Fair Lady, & one of my ALLL time faves ... West Side Story as I'm sure you've guessed from the lyrics!!!! My Mom lived in San Juan for a couple of years & always spoke so fondly of it that when we had the option of cruising there I was ALL for it. The second to last day of our cruise we docked in San Juan, Puerto Rico & it was hands down my FAVORITE day of the entire vacation :) From the moment we stepped off the boat I was in LOVE <3 They have the most beautiful brightly painted buildings everywhere as well as the most deliciously amazing fresh pineapple drinks ... oh yeah & the breath taking views aren't too bad either :)
Shirt-EXPRESS, Shorts-H&M, Bikini-WET SEAL
Sunnies-DEW DROP SWAP (Can't remember the name of the boutique)
We spent the day walking through all the little streets & shops of Old San Juan, sampling local foods (lobster empanadas), exploring the forts, & refueling on fresh tropical drinks. I also got a chance to practice my rusty Spanish speaking skills, I was surprised how many words came back to me. I'm so glad that I finally got to showcase these shorts again here on the blog, the last time I styled them on here was back in August at the Neiman Marcus Event. I seriously am getting "homesick" looking at these pictures, can you be homesick even if you've never lived there?! Either way, I want to go back to San Juan ASAP & for way longer than a few hours while passing through on a cruise ship. Wishing you all a terrific Thursday & I hope you'll stop by tomorrow for the first #Friday 5 post :)
Oh yeah, HAPPY VALENTINES DAY <3
